Touching the Rays..............




My kid's favorite part of the Virginia Aquarium is the Ray Tank. They love touching/petting the sting rays. Last night when we went to see the rays, the first time, we were the only ones in the room. It was really neat to be seeing them swim and touching them without out all the noise and commotion of other people around. They seemed to really like Myshel. They would swim over to where she was and swim high enough in the water so that she could touch them. I think this is probably my favorite part of the aquarium, too.


You can't see it too well in this picture, but Vance is actually touching a ray here.

Myshel showing off her magical "touch"

McKaylie and Noah watching the rays underwater through a little window in the side of the tank.

Me and McKaylie trying to get them to come and see us. (In truth, McKaylie wouldn't touch them even if they did come by her)

My kids r wimps! They have not touched the rays one time!! I have showed them that nothing is going to happen to them but they refuse. What are you gonna do? And where were the Godfreys this morning? Certainly not at the stake picnic!!!

I knew you'd be asking me that!!! McKaylie was a BEAR this morning and I was being lazy. I didn't even get completely dressed until around noon! There, I admit it, I'm a bum! I know I need to do better:( Whatever.......
